the protesters. now the question in washington, how do you respond to vladimir putin? our secretary of defense gave a warning to russia today like sort of cold war style. it is unclear whether putin is listening. a top russianing new agency says the ukrainian president is staying in a kremlin guesthouse and still considers himself the president and plans a news conference tomorrow. he scened from ukraine during protests. ukraine is smith between a pro-east and a pro-west. the future of the ukrainian people is hanging in the balance. and putin ising ignoring calls from the west to stand down. putin is pushing his tough-guy image these days, made famous in these shirtless pictures. he has ordered war games along russia's western border right where it meets ukraine and making sure the world sees him flexing his military muscles. releasing this ridow of fighter jets training. secretary of state john kerry says putin claims the drills have nothing to do with ukraine. secretary kerry says he is asking the russians to let ukrainian make their own doeses. >> i talked to the foreign minister and we tal
the ports. and today, they took over two strategic defense areas, defense missile systems. it appears now they control just about everything. well, overnight, united states time, my crew and i flew down to crimea to get a look on the ground and we'll begin where we landed. we arrived at the airport midday. and everything seemed pretty normal. nobody bothering you, nobody asking questions, nobody staring you down in any strange way. the weather much better here than in the north. and then, over here at this gate that leads out of the airport, a man who professes to be a local from simferopol who is volunteering, with volunteer equipment, things that belong to himself, but one difference you might notice here, see the brand-new scotch tape on the fence post here holding up what is a brand-new russian flag. the changes are subtle. they are not in any way oppressive. but they're here. >> i saw the victims for the first time in my life and i was scared. >> she grew up here. last week when the russians arrived, she was frightened. >> i thought that it was the beginning of maybe war and an expec
the former defense secretary william cohen. he also served in congress during much of the cold war. secretary cohen, how serious is this situation? the development of it so far? >> well, the situation in ukraine is quite serious, because you have this great divide ideological divide within the country itself. the russians at this point appear to be engaged in some chest pounding. and i think they must take care. the united states is kind of warning them not to go to a cold war mentality. but that warning has to be with some caution as well. we don't want to give the implication to the ukranian people we're about to commit military forces to the region. and i think the signal to the russians has to be, you just invested 50 or $60 billion in building some goodwill. that will dissipate immediately. you don't have to use your military. you certainly have controls over the economy of ukraine, gas, loans, credits. so you can flex muscle but do it in a way that tries to hold the country together. i think that's the message the united states and the e.u. has to send. let's say let's work with russia
